Broward County’s Port Everglades is one of Florida’s most active and diverse ports, serving as the main seaport for cargo and petroleum products, as well as one the world’s top three cruise ports.
Managed by Chief Executive and Port Director Steven M. Cernak, Port Everglades has extensively involved stakeholders and the public in the development of the recently-approved 20-Year Master/Vision Plan. Capital improvements including an on-port rail facility, five new cargo berths, and the deepening and widening of the Port’s navigation channels are creating thousands of new jobs and enable the port to better serve customers in the cruise, petroleum, and cargo industries.
As South Florida becomes an increasingly important center for trade with Latin America, investment in infrastructure has never been more critical. With more than a third of American exports to Latin America passing through Florida, it comes as no surprise that both Port Everglades and nearby Port Miami are investing in South Florida’s role as a leader in international trade and logistics.
